Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN: My son is 38, unmarried and lives In an- other city. I get two weeks vacation a year and for the past several years I've gone to visit him. I do not stay In his apartment, however. I have a brother in that city who wants me to stay with him. The problem I am writing about is making me sick. My son's apartment is so filthy I can't describe it. When I tell you he has six-month-old magazines and papers, stacked up, you can believe It. I don't see how a person can live in such filth. Apple cores, banana peels, beer bottles, dried out plants, clothes hanging on the arms of chairs, on door knobs, on the floor. On my last visit my son asked me not to dean his apart- ment because he "knows where everything is." He said tha last time I cleaned up his place he couldn't find some bills and important papers. Well, I just couldn't stand the mess so I went to work and tidied the place up. When he came home he was furious. The next day he would not answer the door to let me in nor would he speak to me on the' phone. When I left town he didn't even say goodbye. What did I do that was so wrong? How can I reestablish communication without crawling back on my hands and knees? Southern Mother DEAR MOTHER: My advice is to leave your son alone for a few months, then write to him about an unrelated matter. Make no reference to the unfortunate incident. What you did "wrong" was to ignore his request that you leave his apartment as it was. A 38-year-old man has the right to live as he pleases. Next time stay out of his apart- ment. Ask him to meet you at your brother's place. What you don't see won't bother you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is for that broad who thinks people are stingy if they don't take passengers along "as a favor" since they were "going anyway." Listen, Lady, the av- erage automobile depreciates at the rate of 7 cents a mile. You didn't say how far it was to Florida, and I can im- agine what you meant by "a few personal belongings." May- be a small sewing machine, a hah- dryer, a couple of wig boxes, and a bird cage. When I was in high school my dad gave me orders. If I carried passengers to football games or barn dances, they had to chip in for the gas and oil. If a tire blew, they had to kick in for that, too. In other words, no free- loading. These are darned good rules to live In San Antonio DEAR FAIR: I suspect you're about my vintage. In those days (antedeluvian, of course) a buck was a lot harder to come by and a car was a big deal. I agree that a person who travels several hundred miles as a passenger should offer to share the cost of the gas and oil but short trips should be favors. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This Is a funny problem, but no one in our family is laughing. Tell us what to do, please. My uncle and aunt were married for 10 years. They fought like a couple of jungle cats and finally got a divorce. Three years later they decided to try again. They didn't remarry but they are living together. This arrangement has been going on for seven years. They are giving themselves a 20th wedding anniversary parly, Ignoring the fact that they have been living in sin for the past seven years. What should we do? Ashland, Ohio DEAR ASH: Go to the party and have a good time. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a guy 19. My girl is 18. She's a nifty dish and has her head together but when it comes to pucker power she registers zero. To put it bluntly, kissing her is like kissing a cement wall. I don't want to hurt her feelings so I pretend I'm being sent. Maybe if you print this hi your column she'll take the hint. Osculation Needs Resuscitation In Ohio DEAR Os: That chick could use a little light instruction, Busier. Invite her to be a participant instead of a spectator. She'll get the message.

(AP Wirephoto) Do-it-yourself dream homes by neighborly co-operation Thundery, November 9, 1972 THE UTHMIDGI HHUUD 19 Shortage of doctors in China TORONTO (CP) Despite rapidly expanding training fa- cilities, China still suffers from a shortage of doctors, Dr. Fu Yi-Ch'eng, deputy secretary- general of the Chinese Medical Association, said here. Dr. Fu, deputy leader of a 12- rnernber Chinese medical dele- gation to Canada, told a news conference the 70 to 80 per cent of the population living in the AYLMER, Ont. (CP) Nine families, caught in that limbo where earnings are too high to qualify for public housing but too low for the kind of home they want, have found another way to get their dream house. They are building it them- selves. The families of this commu- nity southeast of London form- ed their own building co-opera- tive in which they perform their own labor but qualify for a Na- tional Housing Act mortgage. The nine new homes, eighl with three bedrooms and one four-bedroom, are due to be completed by spring. Each will be worth between and but will be achieved at a saving of at least each. "We wanted to show people who say they can't afford their own house that it can be done if you are willing to do it yourseli and not just cry over spilled said Jack Groot, pres- ident of Ayhner Builders Co-op- erative. The nine families have annual earnings that range from :o and none of the men had sufficient experience or skills to build a house on his own. WORKED TOGETHER The lots are CO by 133 feet and cost nearly each. The members divided in two groups "or the building to keep it less congested and a 11 o w for shift work. They allowed about 5 hours, mainly on weekends, to complete construction. Their big mistake, said Mr. jroot, was trying to draw up :heir own blueprints instead of ;oing to an architect. i ana of I. out own Marvin Irwin, a former stud- ent of the University of Leth- bridge, has obtained a scholarship for the highest en- rance marks in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Alberta. He graduated from the U of Faculty of Arts and Science vith great distinction last year. Mr. Irwin is the son of Mr. nd Mrs. Carl Trentini. FINAL DAYS of our Gigantic STOCK REDUCTION SALE!

Convention wants act reinstated EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government should rein- state the Sexual Sterilization Act, according to the second annual convention of the Wo- men of Unifarm. The controversial act, first approved in 1928, was removed this year by the government, which said it offended basic hu- man rights. Those delegates favoring a resolution asking that the law be brought back said they are concerned about innocent chil- dren being brought into the world by people with "no idea of what they're doing." There also was concern that some handicapped parents would not be able to support their chil- dren. Basically, the act allowed for the sterilization of persons Ihought unable to raise children properly such as person suffering from severe retarda- tion. FIRST FROM THE SOUTH Texas State Sen. Barbara Jordan of Houston became the first black woman from the South to be elected to the U.S. House of Representa- tives. Sen. Jordan, 36, was elected from a predominantly Negro district in Houston. (AP Wirephoto) countryside rarely see a quali- fied physician. These people are served by "barefoot peasants who receive enough training to deal with common ailments and then return to the fields. Dr. Fu said they represent a "prelimi- nary solution" to the medical care problem. He said about doctors graduated fa the first 15 years of China's Communist govern- ment compared.with in the 100 years preceding its takeover in 1949. Efforts were being made to speed the production of grad- uates by shortening undergra- duate courses to three or four years, but the program was ex- perimental and still was being evaluated. Dr. Fu said the best elements of traditional Chinese medicine are being integrated with West- ern methods. Practioners of both disciplines work side by side and patients may receive both kinds of treatment. Acupuncture, the ancient practice of planting needles in Baby- heart monitor WINNIPEG (CP) Obstetri- cians at St. Boniface General Hospital now monitor the heart activity of babies about to be born when medical evidence warns they may be in trouble. The monitoring system was developed and built in the United Stales and has been op- various parts of the body, had proved effective in treating some types of deafness and re- search in the treatment was continuing. He said venereal disease has virtually been eradicated in China by wiping out its sources, Shortly after the present gov- ernment came to power, it closed all houses of prostitu- tion, gave medical treatment to the occupants and put them to work in other occupations.

It is during this period that the mon- itoring system can prevent harm to the baby and illness to the mother. The monitor measures the fetal heart rate and uterine con- tractions fa the mother. Prior to the natural rupturing of the sac fa which the baby' develops, the fetal heart is mon- itored by ultrasound sensors through the mother's abdomen. Direct electronic sensors are at- tached to the baby's scalp or buttocks after rupture of the membrane. Monitoring the uterine con- tractions, the system employs external sensors first, then switches to a saline-filled cath- eter after membrane rapture, measuring the exact pressure exerted on the baby by its mother's labor contractions. The sensors are coupled with remote-control computer de- vices in the labor room nursing station, warning the staff it fetal heart rates become too slow or too fast for predeter- mined tolerances.
